I know of 1 member in particular who had small paint defects throughout the paint on his 2014 SS. I believe they gave him a heard time at first, but eventually ordered him a new car with the same options.

You could try taking it to 1st State Chevy in Delaware and asking for the Sunday joyride special.















I'm only kidding!

They would have to be able to find you the exact 2013. They would then do a dealer transfer. You could check online by area to try and locate one. They usually say they only want to stay in a certain Geographical area. Hang in there and good luck you are in for a loooooong ride.

You always have to give them the option of fixing it right? I would think a great paint job would hold up better than stock. More paint chip stories each day on here...

Let them paint the car, suggesting that if they are going that far, just repaint the entire to make sure the paint matches.

AFTER they re-paint the car, inspect it and decide what to do next.

Give them a chance. You 'might' just be surprised.

Besides, I seriously doubt whether GM will agree to replace your car without you giving the dealer a chance to make things right.

can you explain the paint defect? I can't imagine why they need to paint that much unless they are blending into other panels.

No offense but without some kind of visual, just have no idea what we are talking about here. Seen some cases (wife's VW Cabriolet with this HUGE boil on hood AFTER we test drove it and signed) but a paint job that bad should be self evident.

Yes they replaced the the dash. It was after they attempted to repair it 3 times. The only way he going to get a new car is under the lemon law. Depending on the state The lemon law the dealer has a set of amount times to repair the car and/or a time limit.

Lol I don't know what paint defects are defined as?..I have faded paint in corners of some of my panels on my 14' and like little specs of dirt under my paint but I feel like I'd look rediculous bringing that in and being like "You SOB'S sold me a paint defected car!!!" LOL..

I have the same trapped dust, and fisheyes. Only reason I haven't had them repaint is I worry about the baking of paint and the hardness of the final coat. I know that they said they cant bake it at certain temps due to the parts being on the car like the interior trim. I am basing this off of what I was told, so please forgive me if my assessment is wrong.

It depends on what type of heaters you use. I worked paint repair for Gm. I used a ir heater. It was set at 280 degrees.I never did take any trim plastic or rubber parts off. I used aluminum tape and foils to cover the trim areas.

Yes , seriously. I dont think anyone could expect this many defects in a new paint job its eaten into the clear coat or completely through... on a 57k car or any new car for that matter.

When my new 2014 arrived at the dealership, one of my EAGLE EYED friends started pointing out all the dirt in the paint and imperfections. My thinking was, hey, I ordered this car and waited 2 months for it to be built - it's mine for better or for worse. Now, in my case we're only talking a $38K car, nothing that'll ever be considered a collector car like a ZL1.

I wouldn't like the idea of a dealership re-painting on a my new car. Can't some super detailer guru whip out a buffer and cutting pad and correct some of that with polish? I feel bad for the OP, but why weren't the blemishes noticed before taking delivery?

Please keep us posted.
